What is Orienteering?

What is "orienteering"?

Orienteering is an adventure sport, that takes place outdoors, where competitors search for a series of checkpoints (known as controls) on a map. 

Who is it suitable for?

It is suitable for all age groups with different “courses” available ranging in difficulty and length (e.g. from 2km to 10km). Our club caters for families, uniformed groups (e.g. scouts), schools and individuals (from beginner to elite). 

Where and when do SEVO run events?

SEVO run a variety of events all year round across the South East of Ireland, typically ranging from open mountain (Comeraghs), forests (Portlaw), sand dunes (Tramore), urban areas (Cahir, Enniscorthy etc.), parkland (Kilkenny Castle, Kennedy Park).
